Beckman Institute Research Image Contest

Each spring, Beckman hosts a research image contest that includes categories for undergraduates, graduates, postdoctoral or staff researchers, and faculty members.

Members of the Beckman community are invited to enter, as are those who work outside Beckman but have used the institute's core facilities, like the Biomedical Imaging Center, Microscopy Suite, or Visualization Laboratory, to capture images.

Leaders of those facilities, as well as the Beckman director and its new media design specialist, serve as blind judges. Winning images are framed and installed for a year in the Director's Conference Room. Then, they are displayed on the walls around the institute.

Beckman researchers should watch their email and the Beckman Bulletin each spring for information about the contest. Questions can be directed to the Communications Office.
